MPaulHolmes Open ReVolt How-To Presentation!

The only thing cooler than having Paul be the secret mastermind behind the Open ReVolt project is meeting him in person!

He gave a great presentation this past weekend at the Mother Earth Fair in Puyallup, Washington, teaching an entire crowd how to build their own electric car controllers!

I happened to be there, and just so happened to have my video camera, so I rolled on it and put it on the web.

So, even though you missed the live event, you car re-live it on YouTube!

This one's a two-parter!




Oh my, I hadn't realized I show up in the thumbnail for the second video.... I had such terrible hat-hair!

haha, Thanks Ben, but the secret masterminds were Ian Hooper, Fran Sabolich, and Chris Freyman. My only original idea was to put heatshrink tubing on the big bolts, which didn't work out well at all. hahaha.
